Logical and Computational Structures for Linguistic ModelingStructures Informatiques et Logiques pour la Modélisation Linguistique, (24h, 3ECTS). Taught in roundrobin by Benoît Crabbé (Paris Diderot), Philippe de Groote (INRIA Lorraine), and Sylvain Schmitz (ENS ParisSaclay). Year 2019–2020Teaching StaffThis year, the first part of the course is taught by Benoît Crabbé (Paris Diderot). The second half is taught by Philippe de Groote (INRIA Lorraine). ScheduleTBA LanguageTo be decided with the students. The course material is in English. Students will be allowed to take the exam in French or in English. DescriptionComputational linguistics employs mathematical models to represent morphological, syntactic, and semantic structures in natural languages. The course introduces several such models while insisting on their underlying logical structure and algorithmics. Quite often these models will be related to mathematical objects studied in other MPRI courses, for which this course provides an original set of applications and problems. The course is not a substitute for a full cursus in computational linguistics; it rather aims at providing students with a rigorous formal background in the spirit of MPRI. Most of the emphasis is put on the symbolic treatment of words, sentences, and discourse. Several fields within computational linguistics are not covered, prominently speech processing and pragmatics. Machine learning techniques are only very sparsely treated; for instance we focus on the mathematical objects obtained through statistical and corpusbased methods (i.e. weighted automata and grammars) and the associated algorithms, rather than on automated learning techniques (which is the subject of course 1.30).
